Allan is a three-time Grammy nominee, with songwriting credits for performers like Kenny Rodgers, The Oak Ridge Boys, George Jones, and Diana Ross. He has been a multi-time finalist for IWMA and Association of Western Music Song of the Year, IWMA Western Album of the Year, Songwriter of the Year …and the list goes on! Allan and Kate have been working hard to finish their new mini-album CD “Thistles & Thorns” that includes their new single to be released in mid-May “West Texas Blues”.
